KIEV, November 3 (Itar-Tass) —— The Ukrainian Central Election Commission has counted 99.79 percent of voting protocols from the October 28 parliamentary elections.
According to preliminary results, the ruling Party of Region has received 30 percent of votes, the united opposition party Batkivshchina 25.53 percent, the Ukrainian Democratic Alliance for Reforms (UDAR) 13.95 percent, the Communist Party 13.18, and the nationalist political association Svoboda (Freedom) 10.44 percent.
The turnout was 57.99 percent.
The elections were held by a mixed system: 225 MPs were elected from parties and as many ran in majoritarian constituencies.
CEC Chairman Vkladimir Shapoval believes that it was a mistake to organise mixed voting that caused the largest number of problems and “raises lots of questions”. “And I am not sure that all these are just ordinary errors,” he said at a meeting with Audrey Glover, head of the OSCE's Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) Election Observation Mission in Kiev.
